Software News   Software News : Return of Amiga Emulation for Beginners Confirmed
   posted by AF on 13-May-2007 11:44:47 (2593 reads)
An off-shoot of Back2roots.org known as Amiga Emulation for Beginners was designed to assist gamers who wanted to play retro games through emulation. However, just a few months after Back2roots.org was shut down the website vanished without warning and to the dismay of many Amiga gamers. However, Amiga Flame can officially confirm that the emulation website will return.


Richard Brigham, webmaster of Amiga Emulation for Beginners, revealed that “lots of progress has been made, and a lot of the stuff that was on BTTR will be there too”. The new site will feature new emulation guides (in HTML, Word, and PDF formats), a massive commercial games list, collections like T-Bag, Assassins, and Games Galore, and more freeware and shareware. Finally, there will be a section where remakes of classic Amiga games like Alien Breed and an assortment of others can be downloaded.

This exciting development is bound to wet the appetite of retro gamers but you must be patient as Richard Brigham is working alone on the project. He hopes to upload the new version of Amiga Emulation for Beginners by the end of May.

That's good news.

On the topic of back2roots.org I don't know if anyone else around here has noticed, but the back2roots.org ftp server is back up and running again and still has all the games from the website on it.

If you have a look at ftp://ftp.back2roots.org/pub/back2roots/files/games you will see what I mean. The only problem is due to the way the server is currently configured it only seems to be possible to get the fist part of the list of available downloads with your ftp client.

This is good.
Now, not on the topic of back2roots, has anyone noticed that Ancient Toys is back online? Yes. It's true. They are back. Most games are still there and the design is completely updated. The Ancient Toys old link still works and will redirect you to the new one.
